Soothe Shaved Legs With This Cheap Medicine Cabinet Trick

Apr 19 2014 - 2:00pm

Remember that classic doctor's advice of "Take two aspirin and call me in the morning"? We're not doctors, but this is a remedy that should help with the inevitable razor burn that comes with unveiling our legs for the first time in months.

Step One: Start by crushing two aspirin between two sheets of wax paper.

Step Two: Dissolve the aspirin bits in 1/4 cup of distilled water.

Step Three: Add three drops of glycerin to the solution. This emollient acts as a solvent for the aspirin while holding moisture in your skin. Stir the paste until the pills are dissolved.

Step Four: After shaving, apply the mixture to your skin with a cotton ball to avoid shaving bumps and calm any irritation.
